Road to Richmond :Go Figure, Gardner-Webb saves the Day !


Ever been in a situation where you just needed to catch a break? As the All-State commercials say- I am so there. I can know say I WAS so there but at 9:32 A.M. this morning that all changed.

Every Friday night for the past 2 seasons Chip Crabill and myself have broad casted one of the local (Augusta County) High School football games. ESPN Radio 1240 is the station that we broadcast on and this week we were scheduled to call the Liberty-Bedford @ R.E. Lee playoff game a 7:30 P.M.

The trouble I was having was trying to figure out how to get from Richmond (VCU) to Gypsy Hill Park in time for the broadcast to start. Strasburg and Wilson Memorial are set to play their Class A State Final Four Volleyball match at 5:00 P.M. and the two venues are separated by 109 miles.

Here is where the Runnin' Bulldogs of Gardner-Webb come in and save the day. G-W is playing a Men's Basketball game at 8:00 P.M. Friday night in Blacksburg, Va. against the Va Tech Hokies. ESPN-1240 is a flagship station for Virginia Tech and all things Hokies which means their college basketball game trumps our football broadcast.

Chip called to give me the news and while I am sad that our listeners will miss out on our broadcast of the Leeman, it does remove me from a tough spot. Buffalo Gap, Riverheads and Lee will all play games this Friday night and we will be back on the air next Friday covering one of the teams still Chasing The Dream.

If you were going to listening to the broadcast you now have three choices. (A) Head over to the Stadium and watch R.E Lee play in person, (B) enjoy the broadcast of the Hokie basketball game or (C) head on down to Richmond and watch the Lady Green Hornets battle the Strasburg Rams in the Final Four...

Best of Luck to the Leeman, Gladiators and the Bison this Friday night!

Hooray! God provided a way even if it wasn't via an airplane! I wish I could go.
